How To

security system care If your system is set up to alert a central monitoring station when an alarm is triggered, then the system is typically set up to automatically dial the central station over your phone line. The central monitoring service will then call the phone numbers they have on file for you. As such, you should contact your central monitoring service and verify:

- Their current dial-up number.

- The phone numbers you want them to call you at if they get an alarm.

- The password you use with them to signal "all clear".
